Whatever size beads you choose, make sure they are oblong. You will lay them out side by side in the same direction. The first layer will be making just a row of beads, but side to side instead of end to end. The second row consists of adding a bead between each other facing the opposite direction. Weave your thread in and out all the way til complete. I always double weave to make sure it doesn’t break while wearing it. Remember to half-way, add your geode or pendant as you choose.
